Report

GLASGOW maintained the Championship leadership with a comfortable 55-35 win over Newcastle at Ashfield.

Ulrich Ostergaard kept up his terrific form with the Dane beaten just once on his way to 13+1, with possible maximums for both himself and Craig Cook (11+1) both being spoiled by Diamonds No.1 Ben Barker, who beat Cook twice on his way to 12+2 for the visitors.

Justin Sedgmen also scored double figures at reserve for the Tigers, ending on 12+1.

Glasgow boss Cami Brown said: “I think Newcastle gave us a much harder match than many people expected. There’s no such thing as an easy match in speedway any more, and we’ve always got to remember that.

“The racing has been very good. Ulrich has been the star man, but a special mention for Justin – I think he’s been excellent tonight. In the early part of the meeting he really kept us punching forward and got the momentum going.”

Newcastle manager Steve Pate said: “Overall, this score didn’t do our lads justice in the effort they put in, and they deserved a better return.

“But where many would have expected us to get hammered out of sight, tonight has proved we’re a stronger prospect than people expect, and that makes us dangerous.”
